A leader in a Georgia-based charity centered on helping young men from broken families turn their lives around, believes Father's Day should focus on the "instrumental" value of dads.
On Sunday the United States will celebrate Father's Day, an observance focused on remembering the value of fathers to the lives of their children.

With the nation captivated by the discovery that the leader of a civil rights organization is a white person who has been pretending to be black, some conservative pundits have drawn a comparison with Bruce Jenner claiming to be a woman who now goes by Caitlyn Jenner. If one can be transgender, they argue, why not transracial? The comparison is problematic, however, and could undermine the conservative argument against gay marriage.
Dolezal's parents reported on Friday that the leader of the NAACP of Spokane, Washington, was white. In a KREM 2 News interview the same day, Dolezal seemed to suggest that one's race is whatever they identify with.
When asked if she's black, she answered, "I do consider myself to be black ... that's how I identify." (She also noted that she prefers "black" to "African-American.") more >>

"As I came out of the stall, this gentleman — who was a security guard — came in the bathroom, and before I was even completely out of the bathroom he grabbed me by the arms and pushed me up against the wall, told me that boys aren't allowed in this restroom," the woman, Cortney Bogorad, told WXYZ Detroit.
Bogorad, who wears her hair short like many males, admits that some people will mistake women like her with short hair for boys but they aren't. more >>
Answers in Genesis CEO and President Ken Ham has warned that culture is following in the footsteps of pop star Miley Cyrus, who he accused of shaking "her fist at God" and promoting "sexual perversions." Cyrus recently slammed people who believe that the Noah's Ark narrative in the Bible is true.
"What parent would want their child looking up to someone like this today who now, as an adult, shakes her fist at God and promotes sexual perversion?" Ham asked on his AiG blog.
"Where Miley Cyrus is now in her thinking is where our culture is heading as more and more people abandon Christian morality based on the Bible and decide to make their own rules/laws. Yes, the culture is becoming like that described in the book of Judges." more >>
The Rev. Franklin Graham has said that Shariah law should be banned in the U.S., pointing to the various human rights abuses committed by terror group ISIS in its implementation of the Islamic law. Graham noted that the law has lead to persecution of Christians and other minorities, the oppression of women, and the torture and killing of gay people.
"This is a vivid reminder of why Shariah law should be banned in the U.S. and all countries that cherish freedom and liberty. Some western governments are actually considering allowing Sharia law in certain Muslim communities in their countries — can you believe it?" Graham continued. more >>
